The 2022/23 garden waste collection service begins on Monday, September 5, so if you use the service and haven’t renewed yet, you’ll need to do it soon to avoid missing any collections.
To renew – or sign up if you’re new – just head over to wrexham.gov.uk/gardenwaste to make your payment online. It’s the quickest and easiest way, and you get to do it at a time that suits you.
The charge for 2022/23 remains frozen at £25 per green bin per year, and the service runs from Monday, September 5, 2022 until Friday, September 1, 2023.
If you paid for garden waste collections last year (2021/22), your green bin(s) will continue to be collected until September 2.
“Get the best value”
Cllr Hugh Jones, Lead Member for Environment, said: “To get the best value it’s really important to sign up to the 2022/23 service soon. We know there are some residents who are intending to renew but haven’t got around to it yet, and we really encourage them to do so as soon as possible so they won’t miss out on any collections. We want people to get the best value for their money and to do that they will need to have paid before the new collections commence in September.”
Even if you’ve already renewed your own green bin, it’s worth checking in with any family, friends or neighbours who use the service to see if they’ve remembered to renew for the new collection year as well.
Some of them may have forgotten, or not realised they will need to renew their green bin before September, and will likely appreciate the reminder.
Please pay online where possible
The easiest way to pay for the service is online at wrexham.gov.uk/gardenwaste. If it isn’t possible for you to pay online you can call Streetscene on 01978 298989 to make a card payment, but you are likely to experience a wait if you do so. We highly recommend paying for the service online where possible.
New stickers for 2022/23
Everyone who signs up will receive a sticker pack with a new sticker, which should be displayed on your bin lid from September.
We’re asking residents to NOT put their new sticker on their bin lid until the new service starts in September. Please continue to display your 2021/22 sticker until that service expires on September 2.
No cash or cheque payments
In previous years, we’ve had a number of customers who attempted to pay for the service by sending cash and cheques to us. We must reiterate that we are unable to accept these payments.
I don’t want to renew the service – will you remove my garden waste bin?
Any unwanted garden waste bins can be removed on request. Once requested it may take a number of weeks for the bin to be collected. In the meantime, make sure your bin remains empty, accessible, but not left out causing an obstruction.
It may be worth keeping hold of your old garden waste bin for now because, if your garden waste bin has been removed and you change your mind in future, there is a charge for a new one.
What can I do with my garden waste if I do not want to pay for the collection service?
You can take your garden waste to one of our household waste recycling centres (free of charge). Alternatively, you could compost garden waste at home.
